Natives For Your Neighborhood Plant List

Plants in Glades County

Below is a list of cultivated native plants for this zip code. These plants, all within their historical range in this geographic area, are appropriate for use in landscaping here. By planting these native species, you will not only create a low-maintenance landscape to enjoy, but you will also contribute to the conservation and restoration of South Florida’s environment. (For more on this, click here.)

To take gardening with natives a step further, you can learn about the native plant habitats that are appropriate for your area (click the back button to view a list of those habitats). You can then choose a habitat, and view a list of plants for that specific habitat. This way, you can try your hand at restoring a native plant habitat in your yard or at a project site. Habitat lists also include some hard to grow natives and natives with narrow habitat requirements, such as strictly coastal species, that may not be included on your main zip code list.

To view detailed information on the horticultural requirements and landscaping uses of the plants as well as photos for most species, click on any plant name.
